Nouakchott, the capital of Mauritania, is built between the sea and the desert. Visit the National Museum, with its fine collection of artifacts, and the Artisanal Center, a market where exquisite silver jewelry, embroidery, batiks and other items are sold. End the tour of Nouakchott with a stop at the atmospheric Fishermen's Beach.
Organized ship excursions are recommended.
